have to work toward making the College Greetings the 
best college paper that is possible for a college paper to be. 


Some time ago your curiosity was aroused by the tan- 
talizing posters found on your way to the dining room. 
Questioning, you sought to be enlightened as to what "It" 
was and how you were to get "It." Later another lot of 
posters told you to "Get It on the Brain" and "To Keep 

Page Three 

(Kfte College Greeting* 

It." Later you found that it all had to do with a mass 
meeting in the chapel. There you found that "It" was 
"ginger, pep or enthusiasm." It was contagious. If 
you hadn't brought it you caught it. Excitement reigned 
even the scramble for the Junior banner until one might 
have thought of Emmeline P. going after suffrage. But 
a class rush was not the purpose of the meeting. Its 
object was bigger than a class celebration. You found 
that its purpose was to begin a New Student Campaign. 
Many of you pledged to do your part to swell the College 
walls with new students. Have you written those prom- 
ised letters? Was yours bonfire enthusiasm or are you 
going to keep "It" and work all summer to bring back 
with you others to live in these College walls? 


The fact that one less day has been given for the 
commencement exercises made the days more full than 
ever before. Beginning with the Academy Commence- 
ment exercises on Friday night, every minute of the time 
has been filled with exercises and reunions. Pleasant it 
was to see the students of former years walking about the 
halls enjoying their temporary return to the College 
Home. Saturday was a day set aside for the Art and 
Domestic Science department exhibition. Here, as in the 
concert given by the Seniors on Monday night, credible 
work done for themselves and the College was exhibited. 
On Sunday morning at Centenary Dr. Baker of Urbana 
preached the Baccalaureate Sermon to the Senior class 
on the text "All things are yours." Very optimistic was 
the impression left on the audience especially to the Sen- 
iors to whom going out from college seems to be a giving 
up of something precious instead of an acquisition. 

At the Alumnae Association meeting Monday after- 
noon the Seniors were taken into the Association. A 
business meeting in combination with a program was held,

after which refreshments were served in the reception 

Again, on Tuesday morning the procession formed. 
To Music Hall it went for the final exercises of the year. 
Dr. Butler, after a musical number by the Swarthouts and 
Miss Shastid, a vocal solo by Mrs. Helen Brown Read, 
delivered a commencement address which every Senior 
and every hearer could adopt for personal use.

[Setting — College campus. Nine o'clock in the 
morning before the bleachers. Seniors, led by Juniors 
between Freshmen carrying daisy chains, march across 
the campus all singing college song. Freshmen and Jun- 
iors are seated in background. Seniors come to front 
where a table which holds a scales and diploma has been 

I pray you all give audience 

And hear this matter with reverence 

By figure of a moral play — 

Every Senior at commencement time called it is 

That of their lives and ending shows 

How transitory is their day. 

The story saith, "College girls in the beginning, 

Look well and take good heed of the ending 

Page Five 

Z\)t College Greetings 

If you would graduates be. 

Ye think frolics in the beginning full sweet 

Which in the end causeth your soul to weep 

When your college days have passed away." 

Here ye shall see how History and Prophecy, 

Will, College Spirit with democracy, 

Led Every Senior to this Class Day 

Give heed and listen well what the doth say. 

Records — 
Stand still, Every Senior, whither goest thou thus sadly, 
Hast thou commencement forgot? 

Every Senior — 
Nay, not forgot, but remembered full heavily 
And coming with reluctant feet since 
Loath am I my college for to leave. 
Why askest thou? 

Records — 
That will I show thee. 
I was sent to thee by Faculty. 

Every Senior — 
What desirest the Faculty of me? 

Records — 
That will I also show thee. 
A reckoning they needs will have 
Of thy four years 
Why thou shouldst graduate. 

Every Senior — 
Full ready am 1 such a reckoning to give. 
I know thee not. What messenger art thou ? 

Records — 
I am your past Records. 
Every Senior I arrest and no one spare, 
For it is Faculty Commandment 
That all to me should be obedient 
And their credentials in the balance lay, 
E'er their diploma they bear away. 

Every Senior — 
I have many things to offer thee. Thru 
Page Six 

tKfje College (greeting* Of 

My four years at this my Alma Mater 
Constantly have I worked, nor ever ceased, 
So that by now a goodly heritage is mine. 
But how may I my worthiness 
To thee prove? 

Records — 
By placing thy credentials here in the balance. 

Every Senior — 
In faith, thou art a kindly messenger. 
Tis easy for me thy demands to meet. 
With me I have the very things ye seek. 
My credits, slowly piled up by much labor. 
Oh now I see why I have striven so long, 
And why to my task I have been true, 
Even though thoughtless wishes beckoned me away. 
While other things have entered in 
To make my college memories sweet 
Twas after all for this that 1 came here, 
To gain more knowledge and to labor towards 
An A. B. as the summit of my desires. 
Proud am I, for surely these my credits 
Will more than outweigh the requirements 
For a first degree. Take them and see — 
Do they not balance? 

(Records places credits in scales.) 

Records — 
Nay, there is a great lack. Is this all thou hast to offer? 

Every Senior — 
Consternation overwhelms me. Can it be 
That something more than study is required 
Of him that from college would graduate? 
All unprepared am I further offerings 
To make. What shall I do? How can I 
Swell my account? Oh, say, I know 
Of one thing that perhaps might help, 
It is the History of My Past. 

Records — 
'Tis well she Cometh now this way.

History, what hast thou that thou canst offer Every Senior 
That she mayst graduate? 

Every Senior — 
Ah, good History, 'tis well indeed thou comest, 
For I am in great jeopardy and need 
Of something more this scales to balance 
Properly. Be you a friend in need. 

History (unrolls scroll and reads) — 
The History of the past yields forth most gloriously 
Many a deed of rightful worth and praise. 
From Freshman to Senior days we have 
Past through much that unto us glory is. 
Full four years e'er by now it is 
Since we a merry troop 

A Freshman day didst institute in morning chapel here. 
Our merriment somewhat subdued by tests both long and 

The which to regain we turned our attention then 
We gave a party to our upper classmen, 
A masquerade full bright and free of care 
The while our college worked for library fund. 
Our class it was that gave the first pageant, 
A pantomime of merriment and joy right full, 
Soon after which we marched in stately rows 
With ivy chains upon our shoulders hung 
Beside the Seniors grave in cap and gown. 
The next year, as did become a class of one year's standing 
We entered chapel, more formally, with bands of green 
Our class colors broadly proclaiming 
The which we wore on the occasions 
Such as appeared most seemly — 
Especially one that we will mention here, 
A glorious day for this our college dear, 
When Dr. Welch to us his organ gave. 
Of all the fetes that stand forth prominently on this our 

Sophomore year, 
We call to mind the essay contest 
Time to US of great rejoicing 

Page Eight 

m ^e College Greeting* |TJ 

For first prize we won, and, forsoothe, deserved it — 

The next year still we kept this honor up 

For first again to our deserving classmate fell. 

And when the campaign for endowment did begin — 

As Juniors we stood ready to do all that lay within our 

Of time and money gave we freely 
But more powerful than these our loyalty and college 

spirit true. 
This year began a round of parties gay, 
Receptions, dinners, camp fire feasts and all, 
As Seniors entered we the chapel clad in cap and gown. 
The faculty preceding us in state. 
But lest our dignity on us too much oppress. 
To Lake Matanzas forth we sallied. 
A new adventure to under classmen forbid. 
A year of hard work full of duties only Seniors know 
Interrupted now and then by gaieties 
Till finally with spring returning joy 
Arbor Day approached and we desired a memorial to leave 
That thru the years to come might live and grow, 
Planted an elm within the campus bounds. 
In our four years of enterprise new there have been many 
Destined to last and come to greater strength, 
Self government, two new societies of college rank, 
A revived association for athletics, 
The service circle, a tent full at Geneva, 
The college council and a new endowment fund, 
The first of these most promising and important in our list, 
House government by our students, 
The which we think our college spirit and loyalty increased. 
(Turns toward Every Senior) 
Well, Every Senior, I have done for thee what I can, 
And by thee ever will I stand. 
No man without his past can forward step, 
But when his past is glorious like to thine 
Then truly may he with great strides progress. 
(Hands scroll to Records, who places it in the balance.)

Wt)t College Greeting* 

Every Senior — 
There, good friend, Does it not balance? 

Records — 
Nay, there is still great lack. What more hast thou to 


Every Senior — 
I have possessions inherited from those 
That went before and likewise some 
Gained by myself to pass on to others. 

Records — 
Who holdst these gifts to give? 

Every Senior — 
Tis Will, who cometh now in good time. 
Will, 'tis demanded of me a reckoning 
Of my college days to give. What canst thou 
Place in the balance to weigh it down ? 

Ye perceive here Every Senior in her majesty, 
To whom all creatures have been most kind. 
Coming here with an abundance of worldly prosperity, 
Of various riches full in her mind. 
Now a pilgrimage she must on her take 
Which she in no wise may escape. 
With her does she bring a sure reckoning 
Without delay or any tarrying. 
Full ready is she such reckoning to give 
Of how she has thought and how lived. 
Full four years has she spent 
Upon her labor duly bent. 
Her text books right well has she scanned. 
Deeply into their lore has she delved. 
The knowledge which she has so gained 
Leaveth she unto no man 
But taketh it e'en unto her journey's end. 
But unto one and all does she commend 
That they likewise delve and scan. 
Not for thee can she heap up treasures 
That thou needest to take on thy journey; 
She may, however, prepare thy way 

Page T>n 

Qftt College Greeting* 

That thou mayest spend thy life likewise 

In search of knowledge which is full sweet. 

Pleasures, too, has she received in full store 

That have cheered her when grieved full sore. 

The memory of these shall indeed endure — 

Of that henceforth ye may be quite sure — 

But the pleasures also must abide behind 

That they may cheer thy spending of time. 

If on them thou dost set all thy mind 

Thy reckoning they will make blotted and blind. 

If thou however lovest them moderately 

And with the sad shareth them heartily, 

Then shalt thou free from sorrow be. 

The honors which Every Senior has received in full 

Beareth she not with her into the world wide 
But leaveth them unto those followers most fit 
In dignity, cap and gown a while to reside. 
Every Senior has lived not after her own pleasure 
Without exploring Friendship's rich treasure. 
Friends which she in prosperity did find 
And who in adversity did remain full kind 
Must she leave, e'en though she them do need. 
Every Sophomore who did her so comfort 
To whom for help did she freely resort, 
Every Senior now entrusts to the class of 1918 
Saying: "gayest thou take the labor 
And do so much for her as she for me. 
Pray thee, help her in all necessity 
And bear with her when in most need." 
At the beginning Every Senior right happily did find 
A worthy adviser, wise, gracious and kind, 
With whom she oft did counsel take 
Whether it be concerning deeds or words spake. 
But now that she must forthwith speed 
Whither this adviser can neither go nor speak 
Every Senior wills to whatever follower worthy be 
This counselor who her hath helped right well. 

Page Eleven 

2Ci)e College Greeting* 

Senior privileges and tables in goodly score 

Must she likewise relinquish e'er she depart 

For to go on that journey unto worlds wide. 

May Every Junior, then, in the same wise 

Make use of them in all manner wight. 

The colors which she e'en so well did choose, 

The white and the green, may she no longer use. 

Then does she give both fair and lovingly 

Unto one who now enters strong and hopefully 

The course which she now does complete. 

Senior Prep, wilt thou them take 

And tho' thy pilgrimage be ever so gay, 

Ne'er part with them e'en for a day. 

May they bide with thee also 

And ne'er part thee from. 

Unto the College, which she does so love, 

Every Senior desires to bequeath 

Faith, Loyalty, Service, forevermore. 

Them does she not leave as idle gifts 

But will use them herself forthwith. 

However, wherever destiny her ends may shape 

To others likewise does she commend 

To use these gifts in all manner wight, 

For only by use are they in security 

To afford satisfaction in full surety. 

If now this reckoning be quite clear, 

Then shall not Every Senior pass into that broader sphere 

Unto the which ye each shall come 

That preparest thy account full soon ? 

Every Senior — 
Gramercy, my ever faithful friend. 
How weigh now the balances? 

Records — 
There is still need of greater worth. 

Every Senior — 
Perhaps it might help that I have before me 
My future held by Prophecy. 

Records —

Every Senior — 
Ah, come hither, Phophecy. For me 
Thou canst do much if thou but will. 

Prophecy — 
Willing am I to render service to Every Senior. 

Records — 
The time is mete for thy service. 

(Prophecy steps forward and reads from scroll.) 
Willing am I to render service to Every Senior. 
Tis gladly given. 
Every Senior, at your nearest call 
Have I remained through all 
The spirit of Prophecy grim and gray 
The spirit of Prophecy bright and gay. 
Not only things of good report 
But various things of darker sort 
Have I foreseen. 

Since your first days in the college home 
Thou have I never left alone 
But lessons good or bad foretold, 
And plans for pleasures bold. 
Oft with tantalizing pride 
Have I the very facts decried 
That made you blue all day. 
And oft my spirit bore you up 
Overflowing your joyous cup 
With pleasures rare. 
Through my guidance 
Thou hast been prepared 
For great and small things. 
Twas mine to foretell what the end would be 
And cause thee thy daily tasks to see, 
Which was well met. 

Since I have been with thee for full four years 
And hast shared alike thy joys and tears 
I come now to reveal to thee 
What thy future yet will be. 

Page Thirteen 

W$t College Greeting* 

Every Senior, list to what I say — 

A bright and happy Commencement Day 

I prophesy. 

Then when thou enterest broader life 

Thou shalt be prepared for any strife, 

Oh Every Senior. 

When thou lookest back on her years just through, 

Filled with courage and loyalty true, 

Full well you may know 

That this spirit will grow 

When she reaches new fields to serve. 

The '14 Senior will have great fame, 

And well is she worthy of the name. 

Not confined to college halls, 

Not limited by school room walls 

Shall her success be. 

In every place where woman serves 

Will she be found with ready hand 

For every noble cause to stand. 

Our Alma Mater, though she now leaves you, 

Her college spirit will keep her true 

Wher'ere she be. 

With earnest pride will she hear retold 

Of thy success since the days of old. 

Thy glory will her glory be. 

A large endowment will make her stand supreme. 

But not by this alone, 

But with better equipment manned 

As her future success shall demand — 

A new college hall where each student comes 

With eager pride, 

A new gymnasium and society homes, 

These and much more shall her power increase. 

Add to this, that of greatest worth 

Without the which all is vain spent, 

True college spirit and self-government 

For every student. 

: v Senior, I have caused thee to see 

Page Fourteen 

tUtye College Greeting* 

Full well the course of thy future to be. 
As thou hast been faithful in times just gone, 
So prove thyself in the things to come, 
Living and striving with good demeanor, 
I leave thee to fate, 1914 Senior.

Every Senior — 
Alas ! not yet is the balance even ! 
Oh, History! Prophecy! Will! can you not yet 
Bring added store my plight to ease? 

History — 
Where is thy College Spirit ? 

Every Senior — 
I have forgot my best, my College Spirit, 
Ever near me. 

College Spirit — 
Why hast thou forgotten me 
That have been ever with thee? 

Records — 
Tis ever thus. 

Our nearest good is oft forgotten, 
Stands ready, waiting to be summoned, 
While other aid is sought, 
Yet willingly is service given 
Lest all should come to naught. 

College Spirit — 
Nevertheless I will help thee in whatever way I can. 
Through all your college life 
Have I ever been with you 
Though sometimes unrecognized. 
Four years ago I started, 
Endeavoring to instill within you 
The full meaning of college spirit. 
I am indefinable, 
Yet miraculous power I hold, 
Supreme I stand majestically, 
Above all group spirit which is strong, 

Page Fifteen 


W)t College (greeting* 

Above all class spirit which binds us fast, 
Above all society spirit bound to last. 
A summit am I 

Reached only by graduated steps. 
If college spirit you embody 
Discipline you will not need, 
For only deeds which are noble and good, 
Best for the interests of our Alma Mater, 
Does College Spirit propose. 
Loyalty my second name is, 
Loyalty, which means response 
To every college activity. 
Even tho not fully understood 
Still further truly seems the test 
When measuring up to your best 
Petty desires you put aside 
For the one is only small 
While the College towers over all. 
If College Spirit is your guide 
Scholarship will be your pride. 
For higher ideals you will seek, 
For college standards to make broad 
To limits of infinity. 
Every Senior high my place, 
Your greatest acts do we embrace 
Not in ideal words am I expressed 
But noble deeds of right, true, best, 
To show enthusiasm in every way 
To be embodied in every act 
While in college is not my only work. 
Where'er I go I carry the ideal of my Alma Mater, 
Not only in loyalty to her 
In time of financial crisis, 
Not only in helping maintain her 
My sending her students to carry on my work, 
But her fame still further I carry 
jiving to others far and near 
The very best that is in me.

Listen, Every Senior, 

Of greatest moment is this — 

1 would teach you 

iNot for your personal benefit 

But the glory and fame to carry 

Of this college which loyally stood 

Four years behind you. 

Every Senior, to me greatest attention give. 

Behind you stands not personal self 

But a halo of brightest light 

Which from head to foot enshrines you. 

From a shield is this reflected 

Bearing the three shining words, "Knowledge, Faith, Ser- 
vice.' ' 

Along life's path we go 

Directed by this motto. 

To it ever will you remain 

Faithful, loyal and true. 

Your great watchword shall be 

That which stands above all else to thee, 

Knowledge, faith, service. 

Records (placing the scroll of College Spirit in 
balance) — 

'Tis well. Thy reckoning is true. 

The balance is full well — 

Thy labors long and preparation 

Well warrants now your graduation. 

Yet e'er thy diploma's granted 

May the College vine be planted 

According to custom old and strong. 

Who wilt thou have this rite perform for you 

And the oration of the vine go through? 
Every Senior — 

The 1914 Senior will I have, 

She of the present year. 
Records — 

With her let this little band, 

Will, History, Prophecy and College Spirit, join hands, 

Who brought thee to this day.

be planted.) 

1914 Senior steps forward and reads — 

As the closing part of every class day is usually the 
planting of the ivy, we are observing the same custom to- 
day, with a change from the ivy to the wild grape vine. 
This branch is a cutting from one great vine just as our 
lives are cuttings from this one institution. We plant this, 
which will bloom in all its fragrance, thus symbolizing our 
hopes that our lives may blossom into fruitful deeds; and 
as this vine extends from tree to tree, may the work we 
undertake grow and spread into true worth and usefulness. 

College Spirit (taking spade) — 
Here, Every Senior, at the foot of this lovely tree 
This vine will plant 
A symbol of your victory fairly won. 
A symbol of your work well done 
You'll leave to others yet to be, 
Of grace and beauty by this tree. 

Will (taking spade) — 
To others' care we'll leave this vine. 

Prophecy (putting in a spadeful of earth) — 
She will spread from tree to tree 
Filling the whole campus with beauty. 

History — 
This vine planting starts a new epoch 
In your life, Every Senior. 

Every Senior — 
Kind friends, without you 1 could never graduate. 
To History, Prophecy, Will, and College Spirit 
I owe much without which 1 should have been lost, 
And so I thank you for your timely help. 
And now in celebration of my triumph 
Let us, supported by our nearest class, 
Join heart and voices in singing our class song. 

(Preshmen rise and join in class song.)

Our play you have heard to the end. 

We hope you have enjoyed it, friends. 

For every Senior's deeds are told 

According to Class Day custom, new yet old. 

For every Senior's race is done, 

By faithful help is prize is won. 

And those things which to Class Day belong 

In a new way without being long. 

Now if in your places you will stay 

You may watch us march away.

Another step in advance for the Greetings was taken 
Tuesday morning, May 12, when the out-going and in- 
coming staffs together with the electoral committee met 
at the Peacock Inn. Over coffee, waffles and other good 
things many plans and ideas were exchanged. The new 
staff was made to feel what lies before them in an entirely 
different way than any foregoing staff, doubtless. As 
past troubles were told, in order that future similar ones 
may be avoided, no other spirit than that of hope, deter- 
mination and enthusiasm was aroused. Abbie Peavoy, 
Erma Elliott and Geneva Upp made short talks on the 
present standard of the Greetings and its aspirations for 
the future. In a brief interesting way Dr. Harker told of 
how our college paper, a real student activity, has grown 
from a small alumnae pamphlet of which he was the edi- 
tor, business manager and staff. Several amendments 
to the new constitution were made and one hundred dol- 
lars of this year's surplus given as a nest egg for a perma- 
nent library endowment fund. 

From the Peacock Inn we went to the Courier office. 
The linotype machines were extremely interesting as ex- 
plained to us. Each member of the staff was given her 
name in metal for a souvenir. 

Altogether the morning was one of profit and interest 
to all. The new staff came home with a firmer deter- 
mination that at the end of next year it could still be said 
of the Greetings, "It has been better this year than ever 
before. " Without a doubt the clause in the new constitu- 
tion that provided for such a morning had proved a suc- 
cess. Next year's Greetings will have to prove its last- 
ing effects. 


The 25th of May was marked on the College calendar 
for the track meet. Early in the morning of that day girls 
ran about the campus in gym bloomers and middies and

practised for the various events. At 9:15 the basketball 
game was called and was won after many excellent plays 
by Martha Kost's team. Then followed the fifty-yard 
dash, the hurdles, the hundred-yard dash, high jump, the 
shot put, broad jump and relay race. The winners in 
these events were presented with pins bought by the Ath- 
letic Association. In the baseball game the class spirit 
was very evident. After a rousing game the Freshmen 
won with a score of 42-15. The Illinois College students 
celebrated their victory in a bigger track meet on our 
campus with songs and yells, adding much to the general 
good time. The enthusiasm was great and every girl 
showed that she had "It." 

The records made were as follows: Running broad 
jump, 1 2 ft. 6 in. ; running high jump, 4 ft. ; hop, step and 
jump, 2 3 ft. 10 in. ; shot put, 2 3 ft. 10 in. 


In the pretty setting on the campus of Illinois College 
the Dramatic Club presented the Greek play Electra. 
The characters were students from the various institutions 
of learning of Jacksonville, our College furnishing the 
girls for the chorus, In the presentation and interpreta- 
tion of Greek setting and atmosphere much credit is due 
both to those who took part in the play and to those who 
took upon themselves the training and preparation. 


At the last mass meeting of the students, Thursday 
evening, May 28, Miss Hess was installed as Senior Proc- 
tor for next year. Miss Watson, the present Senior Proc- 
tor, in addressing the students, spoke of the difficulty of 
organizing this new form of government. Although we 
have had suggestions from other colleges, we have had to 
make our own adaptations to meet the situation in our 
College. She spoke of the organization of the govern- 

Page Twenty-three 


GItye College (greeting* 

ment in its temporary form, of the difficulties encountered 
during the year, and the progress, the growth of spirit, in 
spite of these difficulties. After an appeal to the students 
for loyalty to and earnest support of this new organization 
Miss Watson handed the gavel to Miss Hess as the insignia 
of her office. 

I hardly know what to say. I don't intend to make a 
speech at all, but to thank you for the appreciation shown. 
1 do want to say how much I appreciate the efforts of 
Mary, my sister in this office, for everything that she has 
done. I think you girls realize that it has not been an 
easy matter. She has spoken of the difficulties that we 
encounter as organizers of this government and I wonder 
if you girls really realize the great advantage and the great 
privilege that is ours, having this government. It is not 
student government. I like to call it self-government 
better. It sounds more that each one of us is a woman 
who is living up to her best and is trying to help the girls 
next to her, or across the corridor. 

As Mary has already said, I do believe that the girls 
are not feeling it is a proctorship government any more. 
Next year we hope to have not house government but a 
general student self-government. 

I intend to do my very best for you and for myself and 
that means the College, for we are the college. It isn't 
the building, and it isn't the campus, and it isn't the fac- 
ulty, but it is us, and it's up to us to make this a success, 
and when I say success I do not mean a following of the 
rules and regulations kept in this book. It is simply as 
someone said a while ago, living out the natural way. 
Student government is the natural thing in a woman's col- 
lege. We aren't boarding school girls any more. Next 
Fall when the new girls come I want you as a student body 
to make the girls feel what we stand for. I think that 
student government or self-government is the only way to 
encourage that. 

I am now going to ask that those proctors who will be 
back next Fall, if they will rise to show that they will stand 

Page Twenty-four 

®be College (©reetmgg 

to keep the office they now hold in helping me next Fall, 
to act in the same way they are now acting. Are you 
willing to give the same support that the proctor's are 

Pledge of loyalty to the College and to Student Gov- 

To Miss Mothershead the Seniors are indebted for a 
very pleasant evening spent with her in the society halls. 
Curiosity she aroused by the maze of strings and the in- 
teresting name cards. Much merriment was provoked by 
the guessing of parts of the body. Delighted' were the 
participators by the dainty tables and place cards, the 
green of the degree seniors and the lavendar of the spe- 
cial seniors mingling together in their decorations. The 
little vases filled with syringa we were given as favors and 
remembrances of the evening. 


Many gay times have the Seniors enjoyed these last 
days. One of the pleasantest, most restful times was the 
evening spent on the Elliott porch on Thursday evening, 
in the cool twilight, apart from the maddening crowds of 
examination takers and responsibilities. 

On Wednesday morning, May twenty-seventh, at half 
past eight, Miss Johnston entertained the Seniors at break- 
fast at the Peacock Inn. White roses and dainty place 
cards formed a pretty setting for the delicious breakfast 
served. Even the big appetites for which some members 
of the class are famous could scarcely do justice to the 


This evening I have been looking at my old waste 
basket as it humbly stands beneath the table. It is an 
inexpensive looking affair, that old basket, but it is brim-

ful of memories. It has cheerfully received and hidden 
from sight my failures in themes, in translations, and in 
tests. There are secrets that only my waste basket and 
1 share, for we are firm friends. It must be confessed 
that my basket, human-like, has faults. There was a 
time when the basket's too greedy mouth hid an entire 
week's cookery notes, and again its open sides leaked salt 
across the freshly swept floor. . Nevertheless, my basket 
seldom failed me in time of great difficulty, nor soon shall 
I forget how quietly it held a stack of dirty dishes while 
the inspector's eye roved around the room. Now though 
its useful days are ended, when I look at its forlorn sides 
I dread to part with my comrade, for the basket brings 
back a year of work, friends and fun.

The election and installation of Phi Nu officers was 
held on the last Tuesday of the school year. Irene Crum 
was elected president; Ruth Harper, vice-president; Mar- 
garet Kuck, recording secretary; Alice Tombaugh, corre- 
sponding secretary; Winifred Burmeister was re-elected 
treasurer; Marie Miller, chaplain; Feril Hess, critic; Marion 
Newlin, chorister. 

The girls who were taken into Phi Nu in 1913-14 gave 
a picture to the society. They have also added to the 
society's pledge for endowment. 

Erma Elliott, Abbie Peavoy and Elizabeth Williams, 
our Phi Nu Seniors, entertained the society at a garden 
party at Erma's home on May 25. The last event of the 
year was the Phi Nu picnic at Nichols Park Friday, May 
29. Of course we all had a glorious time and returned 
home tired but happy.

recording secretary, Johanna Onken; corresponding sec- 
retary, Helen Dinsmore; treasurer, Margaret Coultas; 
librarian, Delia Hurst; sergeant-at-arms, Ima Berryman;

The last meeting of the year, on May 26, was the one 
given by the Seniors. A piano solo was given by Lucile 
dinger, a vocal duet by Nina Slaten and Helen Jones, and 
a violin solo by Helen Harrison. An especially interesting 
number was the original farce by Hallie Clem. The last 
number on the program was the demonstration given by 
the two Home Economics Seniors, Mary Watson and Edith 
Heit, when they served strawberry lemonade, cake and 
mints. At the close of the meeting, our president, Helen 
Harrison, made her farewell speech, presenting the Senior 
token, a comfortable leather arm chair, to the society. 

The annual luncheon in honor of the Seniors in Belles 
Lettres was given at the Colonial Inn Saturday, May 30. 
Miss Alma Weber, president for the coming year, acted as 
toastmistress, and each Senior gave an impromptu toast. 
There were several out of town guests. 

We are always glad to have our old members back 
with us, and this is especially true on Alumnae Day. A 
reception to old Belles Lettres members was given in the 

Page Twenty-seven

Many alumnae called during the afternoon. Apricot ice 
and wafers were served.

secretary, Grace Miles; chaplain, Etha Thompson; libra- 
rian, Louise Harries; chorister, Alice Herren; summoner, 
May Bigger; pages, Annie Floreth, Ruth Miller. 


The last meeting of Lambda Mu was full of enthusiasm 
and bright forecast for next year, although a bit saddened 
by the thought that it was the last time just this group 
would respond to the secretary's roll call. We were very 
glad to have as our guest at this time Miss Ruth Davis of 
Atchison, Kansas. 

On Friday night the salad and sandwiches of our out- 
door lunch tasted very good to every member who was 
present at the society picnic at Nichols Park on the twen- 
ty-ninth. All credit to the "eats" committee. 

Lambda Mu is a second time indebted to Rose Ranson 
for a happy afternoon spent at the Ranson home on Mound 
avenue. The good time we had there a year ago was 
fully duplicated on Saturday, May 30. 

The following officers are installed for next year: 
President, M. L. Witbeck; vice-president, Naomi Davis; 
recording secretary, Wylma Cox; corresponding secretary, 
M. L. Powell; treasurer, Hazel Kinnear; critic, Rose Ran-

Y. W. C. A. 

The girls who went to Lake Geneva last year and those 
who are planning to go next fall, were entertained by a 
campus party given by Miss Johnston and Miss Anderson, 
who are I. W. C.'s faculty representatives of last year and 
this. The happy reminiscences of last year's delegation 
made the girls of this year very anxious to see what the 
conference is really like, while the helpful hints about 
what to do and what not to do when there, which were 
served with the ice, were eagerly read. 

The May Breakfast, given on May Day morning, was 
altogether a success. It was a good day and the early 
gathering of leaves for garlands had made all appetites 
very keen. As a result of the financial success, the Lake 
Geneva fund is much increased and the treasurer's heart 
much lighter. The selling of ice cold lemonade on Field 
Day had a similar if smaller effect. 

Our organization was fortunate in having Dr. Baker 
for our Y. W. anniversary at Grace Church May 31. He 
gave us a splendid and inspiring sermon. 

1913 Endowment and Improvement Fund. 

Since the last report which was made March 14, 1914, 
there has been paid in a total of $4,371.27 by one hundred 
twenty-four subscribers. Fifty-four of these have gen- 
erously paid the entire subscription, which is greatly ap- 
preciated. Seventy have made partial payments. Of 
the twelve hundred twenty-six subscribers to the fund, four 
hundred sixty-one have now paid in full; five hundred 
thirty-five have paid in part, and two hundred thirty have 
not yet made any payments on their pledges. It is hoped 
that these will make their payments soon, and that many 
of them will find it possible to give the entire amount in 
one payment. The second payment on pledges will be 
due June 4, 1914, and notices will be sent to all subscrib- 
ers as soon as possible after commencement exercises.

The following is a summary: 

Total amount pledged $182,242.95 

Balance due March 14, 1914 76,200.07 

Amount paid by 124 friends from March 14, 

1914, to May 15, 1914 4,371.27 

Balance due May 15, 1914 71,828.80 

Total amount now paid 110,414.15 

In the Spring the fancies turn not only to thoughts of 
love but also to thoughts of elections for the coming 
school year. The Athletic Association is with the rest of 
the organizations in the election of officers. At a mass 
meeting the nominations of the nominating committee 
were accepted as follows: Esther Fowler, president; 
Edna Robb, vice-president; Alice Tombaugh, secretary. 

"I have since wondered if beautiful old Jacksonville 
never grows weary bidding Godspeed to the young lives 
who as students have tarried awhile in her gates. If they 
carry nothing away but the knowledge of how to take a 
victory with modesty and how to come back after a defeat, 
the work has not been in vain. The long streets, the 
graceful elms, the kindly appreciative folk who dwell be- 
neath them, their memory goes with us always." — Extract 
from story "Chums," written by Hettie Anderson Wilson, 
class of 1902.
